LSU's 2017 investigation of sexual harassment allegations against football player Derrius Guice changed because a representative of Guice's accuser, Gloria Scott, pushed for a hush money-deal according to a recent report from The Advocate.
The representative was Cleavon Williams. Scott says she never requested hush money, nor did she instruct Williams to do so.
Public records show Williams told LSU he would go public with the story if they did not either pay Scott $100,000 or bar Guice from playing in the 2018 Citrus Bowl.
This action tarnished Scott's reputation with those in charge of the investigation at LSU. LSU officials have compared Williams' call to blackmail. All the while, Scott has expressed frustration with the university's handling of her allegation.
Senior Associate Athletic Director Miriam Segar filed a report about the phone call to the LSU Police department.
Scott also said that Coach Ed Orgeron personally called her insisting that she accept an apology from Guice to no avail.
